Our task was to write a short story on a picture of a helicopter of a man on a ladder hanging down from the ladder and a shark jumping out of the water.
The noise echoed across the sea as a helicopter hovered effortlessly over the Pacific Ocean. Its noise was so hurrendous that I couldn’t hear myself breathe. Suddenly a shark appeared out of nowhere. One of the rescue people was dangling on the ladder. As soon as the person spotted the shark, with its razor sharp teeth and its mouth as big as a football pitch.The man tried to climb up the ladder. But there was no luck….
The man sliped because his hands were soo slippy with fear. He slipped down into the sharks mouth. In the sharks mouth it was slippy and slimy. The man punched the inside of the shark, and suddenly he was never to be seen again…
A diver was swimming in the rough sea when suddenly a great white shark appeared close to her.She was terrified.Luckily, a coastguard nearby saw her in distress, with the shark close, and came to the treacherous scene.The coastguard called for help from the helicopter, whilst trying to keep the shark from attaking the frightened diver.When the helecopter arrived , they lowered the ladder so that the diver could climb to safety.As the terrified women began to climb, the shark lanched it self out of the sea trying to bite her.She attempted to shield herself behind the ladder as she climbed.The shark knoked the diver off the ladder and back into the water.Lukily, a trust coastguard was close enogh to snatch her out to saftey.
The shark was guided by conservationists back out to sea, were it swam away .
It was just another cold dull and windy day and I had just received a call. They suspected somebody had jumped into the sea. My job was a rescuer. So we made out way to the destination.
As the wind blew the sea, it whooshed into massive waves. Suddenly there in the water there was a glimpse of something. I decided to take a look so I went down the ladder. To my utter amazement out came a colossal shark that jumped out of nowhere. Its huge jaws were snapping away at me as I hung onto the ladder.
The gusty wind was blowing horrendously at my face. At that moment in time I was petrified, I thought that I was going to die. All types of things were running through my head. I feared for the worst. As the shark came nearer to me, it began to open its ENORMOUS mouth. He had large, pointed teeth that reminded me of a saw. Snap, snap, I knew he was hungry. Suddenly the helicopter started to fly higher, I held on. Phew! That was a lucky escape.
We noticed on the rock a person was standing, waving to us and shouted, “Help, help. We came to the rescue!
As the waves were splashing and the people were watching ( standing on the bridge) a humongous shark jumped into the air . The shark was the colour of ebony and diamond. Its sharp fin was touching the sky.Terrifying the shark was.Just wating for a person to come down and for the shark to eat him/her, the people were terrified.
A man was standing on the bridge feeling the breeze in his hair watching the radiant sea splashing every where, not realizing he stepped on to the broken part of the bridge and fell into the sea, next to the gigantic shark. Everyone screamed !!!!
Drowning in the sea, the man’s heart started beating rapidly! He stopped breathing ,due to the fear of the shark. He felt as if his life had already ended (as if he was with god).
A helicopter had come to save the man. Grabbing the ladder, the man started breathing again. The shark could’nt have his lunch. Now the man was happy.
A daring air-sea rescuer saved a panicking swimmer from a man-eating shark off the coast of Blackpool today. Katy Jones (aged 10) had been playing on her lilo near the shore when a gust of wind blew her out to sea.
The ten year old said “One minute I was paddling in the sea shore, next minute me and my lilo were blown out to sea. I was petrified!”
Worried onlookers on the beach immediatly called the coast gaurd, who sent for the air-sea rescue team.
Helicopter pilot Dave Butler stated “As soon as we knew a child was in trouble at sea, the crew headed off to the rescue. However, little did we know the danger had not even begun.”
As the crew began the rescue, they became aware that a menace lurked under the waves.
“I felt so relieved to see the helicopter coming, I hadn’t noticed the black shadow beneath me.” said Katy. “The man on the winch told me to keep looking at him in the eye. Just as he plucked me from the water, the shadow lunged up bearing its deadly teeth.”
Katy had narrowly escaped the clutches of a rare visitor to British seas. The ten year old was badly shaken by her ordeal but was pleased to be back on dry land.
Katy’s mother Joyce said “We never imagined a family day out could be so dramatic! The rescue crew were so brave and we’re very grateful.”
Following the rescue, the coast guard’s boat chased the shark off into the open sea.
For our homework last week we had to write a description. Here is mine:
As I’m walking through the ebony forest, I smell burning wood from the direction of the horizon. Crunching through the leaves, I search around seeing what I can find.
I can see something in the distance. Sneakily, creeping forward, I discover it is a baby unicorn. It is the most beautiful I have ever seen. With her/his shiny silver hair, and entwined single horn it is so lovely. However, the bit I like best is the tail. The elongated, swishy tail. It is so wonderful! But then when I see her/his breath, I realize I am cold too. Somehow, I feel my spirits go down, as quick as lightning. On top of that, I am desperate for warmth.
The trees are staring down at me and making me feel petrified. Worried about all the noises I could hear (such as the squawking of the birds), I hugged myself even tighter than ever.
Shivering, I stroked the unicorn one last time, before rushing off in the leaves. Crunch, crunch, crunch…
I would like to tell you what we (year5) have been doing in our Literacy work to do with the educational Wii game we have been playing. I am going to go all the way back to the beginning when we started playing because we have done a lot of writing since then.
As a result to our writing my teacher thinks that we have vastly improved on our writing, and have got lot more enthusiastic about it. While doing this game we have included filling a blank map of Africa. We have also written about the Serengeti using the resources of the Wii game and those were very sucsesful . Also we have written a diary about our Wii progress.
Due to the fact that not all the class could go on the game, we split in to five groups of six to do a variety of activities to do with the game. One of these activities was photographers and they had to look around the environment and take pictures to complete our assignment. Then they wrote about what they saw and did. We had other groups, for example the Googlers researched any unknown information. Counters and spotters kept a tally chart of animals we had seen. The Note takers wrote down any interesting facts. Finally the Descriptors had to use good vocabulary to describe the settings of the Serengeti.
We then did some work in our homework books. In our homework we had to pretend that we were the animals in the picture and I think the wii helped me to know facts about it.
Please use the wii to help your children’s writing be even better than it was before. I reccomend this game because it has helped me to think of more ideas and be imaginative. According to my teacher, I have been getting into my work more due to the fact that I want to write. I think this Wii will help your children immensly.
I was swimming in the river, minding my own buisness, when I heard fighting. I rushed over to find a mother elephant looking after her calf ( usally what they are supposed to do). There was another mother elephant trying to snatch the babys food away from it, to feed her youngster who was sat shivering next to her sciving mother. I bet she was begging her to stop, but you could tell she was a little hungry . She may have been sciving herself. I thought that the mother needed to be taught a lesson. I waddled over ( as fast as my tiny crocodile legs would carry me) and jumped and span around in the breezy mornings air. I clung on to the mother elephants trunk, with my sharp, vicious teeth. When I dropped back in the water, I stared in amazment at the damage I had made at her trunk. The babies had run off and hidden behind a thick tree. One half of me felt sorry for her, but I forced myself to be proud of my work. On the other hand, the other mother elephant looked shocked, but amazed at the same time. The elephant that I had bitten looked as if she was going to tear me into a million pieces, but she went to find her baby. So I went back to enjoying my relax in the refreshing water with the sun warming up my face.
It was a close fight between me and the mother crocadile.She was planning to eat me and my bay by.However,the crocadile was too too week.Also i decided to fight her back.I tried to made sure that my baby calv was safe.So i got hold of the mother crocadiles mouth and swang it in the air and threw her among the far lake.I felt proud of myself and my baby clav wass safe after all.
I am baby Jumbo and along with my mother I went for a drink of water . My mother also wanted to give me a bath. As my mother was trying to throw water over me, suddenly, out of the murky deep river a ferocious crocadile leaped in the air and grabbed my mums trunk.
My mother pushed me back to keep me safe.At this point in time,I was petrified of losing my mother , in case the crocodile injures or kills her and also that I might be next.As I was calling for help by vocalisation.
As they were alerted, a whole herd of elephants came charging down and within a split second, the crocadile was nowhere to be seen.
I felt amaized my mother was alive.

When Perikles planned a large-scale construction programme for Acropolis he placed Pheidias in charge of the whole architectural and sculptural undertaking. Pheidias was an artist and sculptor from Athens. He created the colossal statue of Zeus at Olympia, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The outstanding feature of the Acropolis was the Temple of Athena Parthenos the Maiden or the Parthenon.Other buildings of the Acropolis were the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion.
This was the entrance way to the main buildings of the Acropolis. It was an impressive building in itself.
This was the entrance way to the main buildings of the Acropolis. It was an impressive building in itself.
The Acropolis was from 447 bc to 446 bc.
It was designed by the architect Iktinos and constructed by the master-builder Kallikrates. It was of the Doric order with some variations and refinements.
There were 8 columns instead of 6 at the front and rear.
The columns lean slightly inward.
The upper portions of the building incline slightly outward.
The sculptures are too numerous and varied to be the work of Phidias alone. The project probably needed around 70 or 80 sculptors.
These were set in the outer colonnade of the temple. They are in high relief. They show ‘Greek’ victories – eg the Lapiths fighting the Centaurs.
The frieze was on the external wall of the inside ‘chamber’ of the Parthenon. It is in shallow relief. It depicts a procession culminating in a reception committee of Olympian gods. A small group hand over the sacred robe given to Athena’s statue at the Great Panathenaic festival.
